Levothyroxine is a medication used to treat hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid. Your thyroid controls your body’s metabolic rate, which is how it converts food into energy. The thyroid hormones also regulate your heart rate and body temperature.

Levothyroxine is only recommended for people who have an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). If you suspect you have an underactive thyroid, you should consult your doctor right away.
Your doctor will require tests to determine the levels of thyroid hormones in your blood. This is also known as a thyroid function test or simply a thyroid blood test.

Common side effects

The following are common side effects:
Levothyroxine should be taken once a day, first thing in the morning.
It should be taken at least 30 minutes before eating or drinking caffeine-containing beverages, as these can impair Levothyroxine’s ability to work.

Levothyroxine begins to work immediately. However, it may take several weeks before your symptoms improve and you begin to feel the benefits of the medication.
There is currently no evidence that Levothyroxine affects male or female fertility.
If you are concerned about how your condition or treatment may affect your fertility, seek advice from your doctor or a pharmacist.
Oestrogen-containing hormonal contraceptives, such as the combined pill, can reduce the effectiveness of Levothyroxine.
If you have been prescribed Levothyroxine, you should talk to your doctor about your contraceptive options.
